Florida Designated Driver Arrested For DUI After Hitting Three Cars

A Florida woman who was supposed to be a designated driver during a night out became intoxicated and hit three parked cars over the weekend after leaving a bar, authorities said.  Melanie Esclera had a blood alcohol content twice the legal limit when she was tested by police following the string of crashes just before 1am Sunday in Port St. Lucie. When officers arrived at the scene, the engine compartment of her 2010 sedan caught fire.  Officers extinguished the blaze. Esclera allegedly told the officers she had just left a bar, where she was supposed to be a designated driver. Inside her car, they found an empty bottle of Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey in the front seat, police said.  She was arrested for suspicion of impaired driving.
